Everyone know and loves GLADYS KNIGHT and the PIPS still gorgeous 1974 ‘If I Were Your Woman’ but I’ll wager you’ve never heard the song reimagined as imaginatively as it’s offered on the latest single from the Mark Knight’s Fool’s Paradise label.
The new iteration of the classic is re-tilted ‘Your Woman’ and the artists are LANGTON – a production trio from Cornwall, but now settled in Bristol, Langton. Aka Ben, Ben and Jay, they say they love to have fun and jam with music without any specific agenda and that’s exactly what they do here.
The tune is marked by crashing, full on house beats and features an emotive vocal from (on my copy at least) an unnamed diva. In fairness there’s not a lot of lyrics for her to handle; she simply and insistently repeats the title and listen up to the odd sample from the original.
‘Your Woman’ is out now on Fool’s Paradise.
